What's going on? Just thought I should participate in the story sharing.
My story is probably aren't as crazy as some others you might come across but here it goes. My story is just the everyday struggle that people go through. I wake up every morning at 4 am to work with 300 degree asphalt in 107 degree weather for 9 hrs a day so that way my grandparents and little sister can have food in their mouths and a roof over their heads. Then come the weekends I work landscaping for some extra money for the household.
Life growing up was a little rough, I grew up on the south side of Tucson, Arizona so getting into trouble came very easy with the neighbourhood kids. My family worked all the time so I was out running around the streets a lot. I didn't have much material belongings growing up but I had food on the table and the family stayed close so I really can't complain.
My dream job has always been to become a firefighter and is still to this day my dream job. I'm now 26 years of age trying to better myself and if I keep up with my training I can put in for the fire academy and hopefully take on my dream job in the next 5 years or so.
It's a simple struggle but as a man I can't let my family go hungry so everyday I will get up and ETB because I will not let it eat me. Also for anyone else out there who is going through the everyday struggle. Keep you head up, keep pushing forward, know that they're not alone and stay strong for the ones we love and EAT THE BEAR.
